This book was fine as far as it went. I think the general ideas and principles were logical - but it was highly repetitive, and not , for me, in a productive way. And at times I thought it walked a thin line in trying to fit all human behavior and emotions into one model. For example: "The only way to experience regret is to believe that life could or should have happened differently, and is is always a mistaken notion". Really? Because I think there are other ways to view regret - personally so [...]

I enjoyed this book. I did a few of the exercises and felt that they were helpful. It was repetitive (and could have used a little more science), but it will be fun to use on occasion when stress creeps in.

A very insightful book this is not your blow sunshine up your you know what and wow everything is better kind of book. It simply challenges you to look at life in different ways when you are confronted by something stressful in your life the book gives you a way to look at it from a different perspective. This is less of a "you are ok" book and more of a "why do you feel like that" book.It looks and walks you through 13 different aspects of your life that could create stress in your mind I say i [...]

There are a few folks I'd recommend this to, but I should probably do a worksheet on those thoughts first. And then that one too. :-PThe book provides a good summary of what's discussed by many different people from different backgrounds--this is a nice, simplified but still effective approach to getting at the real root of what stresses and upsets us. Simple, sometimes not so easy, but always worth it. This book and the intro videos on the website are good for folks who aren't interested in goi [...]

I found this to be a very helpful book for working through some of the 'chipmunk brain' that I get, especially in the middle of the night or when I really have to get something done that needs every neuron functioning at full speed. Bernstein deconstructs a fairly straightforward series of steps aimed at 'stretching out a cramp' in one's thinking that is causing stress. The steps are consistent. He works through several examples, steadily increasing the complexity of the problem. Along the way, [...]

Ever had something on your mind, going around and around in your head like a hamster on a wheel, getting you nowhere? Perhaps The Myth of Stress can help. The author maintains that stress doesn't come from what happens, but from your thoughts about what happens. If you have a healthy threshold for the truth and appreciate being in touch with reality, this book may help you. No easy answers, but then there never are. You’ll need to do worksheets to get to the truth about your stress in order to [...]

This book really made me think about the conventional wisdom of stress. I was very interested in stress since it seems like it can be good or bad, depending on the amount and a person's reaction to it, so it seemed like a good subject for exploration and exposition. I was particularly interested in how the basis of stress's effect on people started with one man, Hans Selye, and how people are reconsidering what was once accepted as scientifically proven gospel, I think mainly that stress takes a [...]

This book is so simple, and I really loved the de-stressing method described.Many of us are, I’m sure, aware that it is not our situation, but our internal reaction to our situation that is stressful. Too much can be made of this, of course, but it is pretty true. This book gives a simple worksheet method for changing perspective on something that is stressing or angering you. It worked very well for me, though I found it a little more useful for anger than stress.

I agree with the main idea of this book: that stress doesn't come from outside sources but our reactions to those outside sources. I'm at the point where the author has asked me to complete a worksheet before continuing reading. This is where I usually just skip the worksheet and keep reading. We'll see.

this book is life-changing! it take's work, but we can reframe currently stressful situations. if we stop at "what a tool that guy is" then we feel helpless. if we examine the reality of the situation and what's causing that reality, we can problem-solve. if meditation, deep-breathing and cognitive therapy haven't worked for you, try one of his worksheets!

While the book doesn't present any information I didn't know ("Attention! You create stress in your own mind; it is not created by outside forces."), but it does have a nice way of thinking and reasoning your way from arguing with the present. And there are free worksheets on the Web to practice and guide you through the thinking process described in the text. Anyway, it clicked with me.

This is an interesting concept that I feel one could learn to apply in the concept of stress. We all have stress in some form at times in our lives, but to have tools to help us manage it is very fascinating. I have enjoyed his book, and to learn one way to learn how is a great possibility. I recommend this book.

Good ideas and useful techniques for managing stress. Parts were repetitive, but that helped reinforce the message. I listened to it on audiobook, was interesting to do that while hearing about road rage. Scores high in the self help category. You can always change how you feel about your life.

I didn't finish it, not because it's not a good book, but because the repetitive nature of going through the worksheets is difficult to slog through on audio. I'd like to revisit the content in a physical book.

Interesting concept, I see the point & purpose, butm. Don't have time to write a paper on it at the moment, but I take issue with some parts. Still, interesting thought process/change and worth thinking about.

This book totally changed the way that I view stress. It has been a couple of years since I read it and I could use another round of it but it has still changed my life. It helped me to make big decisions in my life and be able to cope with it.

Stopped reading after the first chapter of practical exercises because I don't have time to go through and do them right now, but good basic core concept that rings true to me.
